"Justice Breyer discusses what the Court must do going forward to maintain that public confidence and argues for interpreting the Constitution in a way that works in practice. He forcefully rejects competing approaches that look exclusively to the Constitution's text or to the eighteenth-century views of the framers. Instead, he advocates a pragmatic approach that applies unchanging constitutional values to ever-changing circumstances -- an approach that will best demonstrate to the public that the Constitution continues to serve us well."--Book jacket

"Disc 1. Freedom of speech: Amid the turmoil of the 1960s, students decided to wear black armbands to protest the Vietnam War, igniting a legal battle that led to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision, Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District (1969), which defined students' right to free speech in school. This conversation focuses on free speech in light of Tinker and the Morse v. Frederick (2007) case. Jury Service: This conversation explores the history and responsibilities of juries and the role they play in the United States judicial system. Juries: In 11 short video segments, constitutional experts, lawyers and judges discuss the importance of jury service, including the history of English and American juries, types of juries, qualifications for jury service and what to expect as a juror. Disc 2. Yick Wo and the Equal Protection clause: In Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886), the U.S. Supreme Court held that non-citizens had due process rights under the 14th Amendment. the plaintiff, an immigrant from China who had run a laundry service for 22 years, filed suit after he was denied a permit to operate his business. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that although the laundry permit law was race-neutral, it was applied in a discriminatory fashion. Korematsu and civil liberties: After America was attacked by Japan at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 consigning 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry (two-thirds of them American citizens) to internment camps. Fred Korematsu challenged the internment all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In Korematsu v. United States (1944), the court sided with the government. Decades later, Congress and the U.S. president formally apologized for the internment" -- Container

The road to political democracy : from Plato to the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union by Robert Senelle( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How did democracy, a regime of a numerically insignificant minority in Antiquity, evolve to a 21st century self-evidence in (and beyond) the Western world? That is what this book is about. 'The Road to Political Democracy' is two books in one. In the first part it drafts the red line of the growth of democracy, through the enhancement of its four main Aristotelian features: the rule by turn, the rule of law, education and the role of the middle class. What lessons can we learn from that maturation today? In its second part it describes and cites the historical milestones in the evolution of the democratic regime. It covers twenty-five centuries of evolution, starting with Plato's and Aristotle's works in Greek Antiquity to today's question as to whether democracy is a universal value. This book will guide readers through all the pioneering stages through which political democracy has passed
